Coimbra Cycle House celebrates a new look

Coimbra Cycle House

On Thursday, 28 February 2019 the George cycling community gathered at Coimbra Cycle House, in York Street, George to celebrate the relaunch of the store after a major facelift.

The store first opened its doors in September 2001, and in the hands of owner Vickus Boshoff has grown steadily over the years. As an active and diverse cyclist, Vickus has built a strong community around the store and gained loyal customers by offering personal and friendly service, sound advice founded on experience, as well as a world-class workshop.

The store space has been completely opened up to create a welcoming shopping environment for customers. In addition there is a Body Geometry fit room, equipped with Retul, the best fit tools in the business to make sure you are perfectly set up on your bike. Most importantly, the spacious workshop is perfectly laid out to give your bicycle the care it deserves.The launch was attended by over 120 customers and friends of the store including four times World Champion and five times Absa Cape Epic winner Christoph Sauser, as well as multiple Olympic medallist and two times World Champion Sabine Spitz, current and four-time South African marathon champion Robyn De Groot.

A testament to the strong community that has developed around the store over the years.George lies nestled in the foothills of the Outeniqua Mountains, in the Garden Route: the green heartland of coastal tourism in the Western Cape. The region is renowned for the mountain biking on offer with the Witfontein and Saasveld forest trails on the doorstep, and the Garden Route Trail Park just a forty-minute drive away.

More recently the endless network of gravel roads in the area and the rise in popularity of gravel bikes has attracted several gravel events to the area and seen increased interest in gravel riding from locals and visitors alike.

Coimbra Cycle House is perfectly positioned to assist tourists embarking on cycling adventures through the garden route, riders participating in the multi-day stage races that pass through the area, and the ever-growing community of cyclists living in and around George.If you are passing through the area pop in for a coffee and a chat with Vickus and his friendly team.
